. >> bernie sanders sits on the senate committee that oversees the nrc. he is worried as an older generation of america's reactors comes up for renewal. >> they have always extended when companies have come in and said we would like an extension. i believe over 60, in over 60 instances they granted every one, and that's a problem. that's a problem. >> we wanted to talk to the nrc. over a sikts-week period -- six week period we repeatedly requested an interview at any time or day of their choice but we were told they were over booked. we decided to show up anyway and see if we could get answers. a spokesman came outside soon after we arrived. >> you received the agency's response via our director of public affairs. >> yes. >> the answer of the agency. >> no one is going to talk to us? >> no. >> i actually have the exact quote here on your site. it says that the nrc is devoted to open government, open accountable, accessible. >> yes, all of our information is available on our website. >> but you guys are accessible to the public, how come you can't sit down
and bernie sanders, the independent from vermont is also winning re-election. he caucuses with the democrat. so those are the two calls we'll make. but really the drama is in so many of these critical competitive races. and look at this. indiana, that is really -- look at that. look how close it is. 47-47. only 16% reporting. here's the key on this race. this is going to be an early bellwether as to whether or not republicans can retake control of congress. why? because it's a republican seat, an open republican seat. remember, richard murdoch, the one who made the comments about rape and pregnancy recently. that has hurt him in the polls. republicans i'm talking to tonight say he has to overperform romney by 10% in order to win. so we're really watching closely. and virginia, another neck and neck race, talking about the presidential being too close to call. same with virginia. george allen, the republican ahead by almost 350,000 points but very early in that state. >> and obviously one of the things we're watching is the balance of power on capitol h l hill.
one is for bernie sanders of vermont who won re-election tonight. the other is more towards the middle. that's because that's angus king, the newly elected independent senator of maine. all of these white seats in the middle are still those that are outstanding, those that are up for re-election right now. of course, still, neither has even close to the 51 needed to have the full-out majority of the senate. >> a lot of races to find out about. thanks very much. we will check in with our analysts. van jones, you've been looking at the wait times a lot of folks are having. we see them in virginia, see them a lot in florida. lot of people still on line. >> the numbers are important but there is a human drama that is playing out on the ground in these states. people are now afraid they may have to wait until tomorrow. these lines may be four hours long. you look at twitter, a hash tag, stay in line, is starting to move. obama, his fate in florida may hang on people's willingness to stay in line. it shouldn't take this type of heroism to vote in america
